McGlone Welcomes investment in broadband

Following the announcement from BT that a £20 million investment in a major expansion of broadband to towns across Northern Ireland, will see a further 140,000 premises gain access to ultrafast broadband plus the creation of new jobs, SDLP MLA for Mid Ulster Patsy McGlone has welcomed the news.

Mr McGlone said, “The announcement of additional investment to deliver broadband is most welcome.

“This infrastructure is vital to developing our local economy, particularly in rural areas we need to ensure efforts are made to address issues of isolation and poor connectivity.

“With this news, comes the announcement that BT will recruit additional apprentices and graduates. The news that up to 42 roles will brought forward to deliver BT’s Northern Ireland network is fantastic. I’m delighted that BT plan to begin the recruitment process this month.

“We need to keep building and working with business partners to deliver more investment into our local economy. I’ll be meeting with BT to get more details on the roll out of this investment scheme."
